The Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) protect against mercury and 84 other hazardous pollutants such as arsenic, sulfur dioxide, and lead, and the Trump Administration is now “reconsidering” the legal foundation upon which MATS stands. They’re just steps away from putting these crucial health protections on the chopping block.
EPA estimates that MATS save up to 11,000 lives per year and prevent thousands of heart attacks, asthma attacks and hospital visits each year. However, Trump and his administration have chosen to place the wishes of their allies before the health of children and families.
To stop this attack in its tracks, we need public officials stepping up. Take action today, and demand your elected officials join the outcry against this disastrous proposal.
Protect children and families from toxic mercury
